PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # BRS-0001

Internet # 203260876

We tested dozens of spigots and bibcocks for our rain barrels and this was the best we found. This solid brass spigot uses a quick-activating, quarter-turn ball valve with a large aperture for high water flow rates. This kit replaces the plastic gate valve and drain included with all EarthMinded products. If you regularly fill watering cans, this is a must-have.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • Straight water path reduces turbulence and increases flow rate

  • Durable solid brass construction
  • Both spigot and drain have garden hose connection
  • Can be used with any rain barrel that accepts 3/4 in. male pipe thread fittings
  • Model # BRS-0001

Are the rubber gaskets included in the kit? The ones I have will need to be replaced and I do not see this information in the description.

Answer: 
Only the brass valve and drain assembly are included, however the threaded rubber seals are sold as replacement sets. Please make sure to order the correct set - for EarthMinded RainStation rain barrel or DIY rain barrel kit as the hole sizes are different.

adapting a standard 40Gal barrel?

This question is from Brass Spigot and Drain Upgrade Kit
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
April 15, 2016
I've been storing water in two standard 40Gal plastic barrels (normally used for rubbish) & wonder if I can use your brass spigot by making a round 3/4" hole in my barrel. Also, is there a matching brass piece that fits inside the barrel & tightens to the spigot to keep it in place? Thank you.

Answer: 
Yes, you can add our brass Spigot to any plastic container, We do not offer the internal bulkhead fitting, but you can find 3/4" FPT fittings made from CPVC that work fine at any hardware shop and a gasket or o ring should also be used to insure a tight seal. Regards, The Earthminded Team.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Drain leaks nonstop, had to switch back to plastic parts. Bought two sets to "upgrade" the plastic components that came with my rain barrels. The spigots are fine, but the drains leak nonstop. I even ordered new gaskets and they still leak. Put the old plastic ones back in and no leaks. Waste of time and money. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have for rain barrel This is a great add on for the rain barrell. The plastic one that comes with them is not going to hold up. Buy the brass one and you never have to worry about leaks or failure. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worthwhile rainbarrel upgrade Sturdy replacement for plastic spigot supplied with rain barrel installation kit February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by extended life? I ordered this piece as my son (a landscape architect) suggested it would last better in the sun than the plastic one that came with the barrel. I can't tell you if that is true because it is new and not enough time has passed. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Spigot and Drain made for rain barrels! After reading other product reviews, I knew I needed to upgrade my rain barrel spigot but I was leery of which one to get. Look no further than this model. This upgrade kit works perfectly. Other models crack, leak, or are made of flimsy plastic pieces. This model is heavy duty and even easier to install than the original pieces due to its quality. Check out my picture if you want to see it in action. June 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best rain barrel spigot I found to replace original plastic one After using 2 years, the plastic spigot which came with the rain barrel was broken. I was unable to find the replacement parts anywhere. But recently I found the right spigot at home depot.com and ordered one. This fits perfectly to Fiscars rain barrel and is very durable. You can turn the handle with ease and no water leaks when shut. My rain barrel resurrected. September 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great spigot Hooked this spigot up to my rainstation and it works great! No leaks and easy to use. Very easy to install too!! April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product! Very high quality. It fit perfectly in replacing my cheap broken plastic spigot. April 16, 2014
